Just quit HP half an hour ago, after one year and 43,000 posts, I posted my first comment here and felt much better.
HP is going to lose a lot of people I am sure and DU is going to get a lot of new members, the linking to Faceplant will be intolerable to many, many commentators there, and I have noticed a drastic drop off in the number of comments to threads since.
Can not agree more that the infotainment part of HP filtered imperceptibly but steadily towards untruths in the political news.
Having said that it was a great site, turned into a crappy site by the usual suspects, greenbacks.
All things happen for a reason.
